9:01pm
you just give it to wall street and business and follow the george w. bush play book, things will be well. >> a little bit of bare knuckle as brown and whitman hold the first debate in the race for governor. good evening. it was the season politician versus the newcomer. most anticipated political debate at the he hex season is now over. so how did it go? political reporter mark matthews live tonight at uc davis and joins us from the auditorium. it was interesting. >> it was but you know we expected them to be throwing elbows a little bit. actually i think there was more action outside of the awed to have um than inside. let me she you. we have pictures of before the debate. supporters of meg whitman and jerry brown stood toe to toe yelling at each other. more than a kim 100 people standing outside loudly voicing their preference. inside the challenge to get them to answer tough question. the first question certainly
9:02pm
qualified. both candidate were asked how they would solve the state budget impasse. you know. in the legislature? meg whitman went first. she talked about unemployment. >> we have the third highest unemployment rate. only behind michigan and nevada. did anyone ever think we would have the third highest up employment rate in the country. i want to do that by enacting some targeted tax cuts to get industries going like manufacturing. we necessitated to eliminate the factory tax so we can hang on to our manufacturing jobs. >>reporter: and she said she want to stream line red tape to make it easier to do business and if that doesn't sound like how to fix the budget impasse well here's jerry brown's answer to the same question. >> the first of all you have to live within your means. they started spending money and we had a boom and wall street was going and.com and all. that then it collapses. well you have reset. reset 15 percent or 18 percent. i authorized by my legal opinion
9:03pm
an 18 percent reduction in the governor salary. the legislature salary and my own. how do we get this. >>reporter: so the answer from brown is to cut the pay for politician that certainly not going to cost him vote with too many californians. but it doesn't explain how you are going to get rid of the budget impasse in the legislature. both candidates side stepped questions the tough ones any way to get to the talking point. there world trade center a light moment in the campaign and we'll show you that at 11:00 o'clock where jerry brown went off message and he joked about closing down the bars in oakland. it's worth seeing. we have that at 11:00. >> thanks a lot. 2 questions. let me start first of all about the issue of crowd control. it was obviously very, very among take ited out front. mondav i auditorium seats 1600 people but they didn't fill the place. why. >>reporter: 900 people in auditorium that holds 1600. and that was done for crowd control. they wanted to make
9:04pm
sure that the audience would b be, well, uninvolved i would guess. but this is davis. you know. the rowdy ride around on bicycle. it's hard toy imagine that they would want to keep people out because they were afraid they might take over the auditorium. that's what happened. 900 instead of 1600. >> event was for television any way. that was the bigger audience. last question. meg whitman is a political newcomer. jerry brown the old veteran. in some respect whitman perhaps had the most to lose because she hadn't been in the situation before. how did they both do? >>reporter: well whitman ace quick study and she has been very well schooled. and i thought she stayed on message better than jerry brown. but both of them i think stuck pretty close to their talking poychbilitys as i said jerry wandered away once or twice but meg whitman certainly stayed right on her message which i think may have disappointed some viewers hoping we were going to see
9:05pm
more substance from both whitman and brown and i don't think we did. >> interesting. okay mark thanks. reporting live from uc davis. appreciate it we'll look for your report at 11:00 o'clock over on abc 7. thank you sir. moving on. federal judge has blocked the execution of death row inmate albert brown. he was scheduled to die by lethal injection at san quentin state prison on thursday. 48 hours from now in fact at then okay on thursday. judge jeremy fogel said he didn't have enough time to weigh the constitutional issue surrounding the case. this comes after federal appeals court last tonight told the judge to reconsider whet to grant a stay of execution. the panel expressed concern about the state new execution procedure. as well as the time table for executing brown. the state existing supply of the first drug used in execution expires on friday. higher court doesn't reverse the decision by mid nature friday the state will be unable to execute brown for several months. >> real mystery in the east

9:07pm
in front of the man liquor store. kind of a shame. >> feels really weird honestly nobody somebody would drop a dead bear off and not tell anyone. not say anything to anyone. >>reporter: thinks obviously an urban area. not known for a black bear population. the theory is that possibly someone shot it on a hunting trip and then drove it here. one witness told the store owner that they saw a pickup truck driving away. how someone off loaded a 300 pound bear off of a pickup truck without being spotted is quite a mystery. live in san leandro, abc 7 news. >> as you said we have never seen anything like that before thanks amy very much. >> never. >> blistering heat around the bay area today again as you know. number of temperature record were broken. these pictures from downtown san jose where it got up to 99 degrees this afternoon. over 100 in many other inland areas around the bay. spencer is here with a look at where
